    The oldest anime?

    Anyone know which anime is the earliest anime?

    I've seen animes from 1980s. Not sure if there isn't any earlier ones.

    This isn't the earliest, but it's certainly amongst the first ones.

    lol that looks extremely old. I had "modern anime" in mind haha...but I guess it is hard to define what is modern.

    RE: The oldest anime?

    1929 make it damn near ancient to most us. My older cousin (a fellow anime fan when Robotech aired for the first time in 1985) said that modern anime is defined as Japanese animation that was produced after World War II because of the influence of Disney, Warner Bros. and Betty Boob cartoons. At least that is what I was told.

    RE: The oldest anime?

    Well, anime is literally "Japanese animation", so that is one of the earliest anime. But I was sort of perplexed too when I first saw it. Still, a lot of people have rated these old animations very badly on an anime site I frequent just because of how different the style is, but if it wasn't for old animations like this, we wouldn't have what we've got today.

    Plus, the song's pretty catchy! I bet watching that was incredible back in the day. So I gave these animations a decent rating out of respect and willingness to give them a chance. I bet most were expecting black and white Naruto...

    Yeah, I've also heard about modern anime having been influenced by Disney, in addition to the Americanisation of Japan in post-WWII. Don't you mean Betty Boop, though? Here's one series I've been meaning to watch, but haven't yet:

    A great series I've watched from the late '70s...

    And shortly after, the first series of a very famous franchise...

    Thanks for the correction Mantis. I always say boob because like to say boob (giggle). The oldest anime I've seen was Alakazam the Great with (1940's voice) the voice talent Frankie Avalon.
